Comparing your pics to my 900F, it looks pretty much the same. I was initially impressed by your first pic, until I saw what settings you were using.
I will try that chandelier scene on my 900F tomorrow with the same settings on the local dimming and x-tended dynamic range and see what it looks like.
I know people want to be excited about this new set, but you have to be realistic as well. There is no magic to be had here with basically the same amount of dimming zones available, it’s just a limitation of the FALD tech. The only ways to improve is with an over aggressive dimming control(ala Samsung), or throw in a ton more dimming zones.
